The Alberta Family and Social Services Day Care Subsidy is available to parents who need assistance to help cover the fees for child care. Forms for the subsidy are available at www.child.gov.ab.ca . Once a subsidy has been granted parents will receive a subsidy approval letter, a copy of which should be brought to the TOPP KIDS Child Care Centre Coordinator within 2 weeks of registering.
All families with subsidies must provide postdated cheques for the difference between the currently approved subsidy allowance and the cost of their fee for each month registered. Any remaining fees will be charged on the 3rd Monday the following month after subsidy amounts are forwarded back to the program. Parents are responsible for paying any remaining fees by the 3rd Friday of that month. Deposit Policy still applies.
It is the parent’s responsibility to track and ensure their child reaches the minimum number of hours per month needed for a full subsidy payment as every family may be different.
